How good are your HSPU?

 In Workout of the Day

Handstand Push-ups (HSPU) are a key component to CrossFit and a great party trick.  It’s a strong measurement of how strong your upper body strength is.  It should be a good goal for any CrossFitter to be able to do a few of these in a row with minimal effort, then move on to doing long sets.  There are many ways to scale a HSPU for anyone to attempt when working on HSPU before they get to a strict HSPU.  Click the link below and see all the different variations of HSPU and work towards a full range strict HSPU.
